President Trump Is Touring Around The World And Social Media Is Eating It All Up

After facing mounting criticism and talks of impeachment in the United States, President Donald Trump decided to visit a few places with less political turmoil. You know, places like Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the Vatican. And while he might be out of the country, President Trump cannot escape the unblinking eye of social media. Here’s a quick look at a few of the adventures our commander-in-chief has gotten himself into over the past few days.

In Israel, Melania Trump was seen slapping away the president’s outstretched hand. It became “The Swat Heard ‘Round The World.”

No word on whether or not this was a friendly love slap or full on shade. A body language expert has claimed that Melania’s hand slap was in reaction to Trump treating her like a child.

Twitter was quick to jump on Melania’s slap.


They couldn’t hold back the snark.


Or the savagery.


Trump also visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem, making him the first standing president to do so.

The wall, also known as the Wailing Wall, is one of the holiest sites in Jerusalem. Visitors to the Western Wall often leave prayers or wishes in the form of notes.

Trump’s love of walls was not lost on Twitter.


Trump left a note, and some speculated what was written on it.

User @BigAlDell speculated President Trump’s note was less like a prayer and more like a tweet, writing, “I won the electoral college suck it! – DT”

While in Jerusalem, Trump let diplomats know that he had just gotten back from the “Middle East.” Jerusalem is in the Middle East, btw.


While talking to President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, Trump said the following: “We just got back from the Middle East. We just got back from Saudi Arabia. And we were treated incredibly well.”

Trump’s geographical flub didn’t go unnoticed. The individual sitting to Trump’s left couldn’t hide his disbelief.

In Saudi Arabia, President Trump attended the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh.

Nothing weird going on here. Just three world leaders touching a glowing orb in Saudi Arabia.

The Internet showed just how perfect these photos were for memes.

References to movie villains were everywhere.


The background made for the perfect evil-villain layer.


They speculated what magical powers the orb gave President Trump.


Trump plans on meeting with Pope Francis on Wednesday.


While the Pope says he “won’t make a judgment” on Trump until they meet, other Twitter users are less forgiving.


No matter what happens, most people believe the encounter will be somewhat awkward.


But we’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out.
